I ran across a panoramic photo of mars at wiki today...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:MarsPanoramaa.jpg

... and decided it would make a nice backdrop so I made one.

I have no plans to use it on anything so feel free to grab it if it looks like
something you could use.

I don't have it listed at my scraps pages yet but plan to in the near future along with some other junk I recently put together.

Hmm, that gives me an idea. Anyone knows where I can find textures to be used with that backdrop?

That was plan B. I'm sure there are plenty of tiles hidden in that 10,000x1024 photo :)


That's how big whiskey began.... a simple photograph of an observatory ended up inspiring a whole track.

I've used dozens of textures from this site.

http://www.grsites.com/textures/

This has some interesting textures too

http://local.wasp.uwa.edu.au/~pbourke/t ... lour/dirt/

Valve Job once linked us up with a tutorial on how to make 'any' texture tile properly but I can't find it, or the site is no longer around. He used it to make lakebed extreme. I probably have the page saved some place but can't find it right now. Anyway, that link above has a good description of the process that we can work with using exerpts from that large image as the starting point. Cut out any square section then see here:

http://local.wasp.uwa.edu.au/~pbourke/t ... ur/tiling/

and obeone/rudee's photoshop methods

http://cownap.com/~mtmg/misc/obe/

the 'old' reptile program and trial-key (the 'new' sausage site is a mess)

http://mtm2.com/~mtmg/downloads/misc/paint/reptinst.exe
http://mtm2.com/~mtmg/downloads/misc/paint/reptinst.txt

and if you're writing a program...

Most likely 4.
